Brothers & Sisters:
The election this year for leadership of Teamsters Local 251 is historic in many ways. An unprecedented number of members participated in the process and voted. The more involvement in our union makes us stronger. The United Action Slate wishes to thank our supporters for entrusting us to lead the Local for the next three years. All candidates on our slate won the election for their respective position. And will be a united team to lead the Local forward.
Above all, all members need to come together to fight for our common interest as workers. We all need to rebuild our union at each workplace, and reorganize the entire membership to be able to fight for good contracts in difficult times for organized labor. We all need to help each other enforce our current contracts as employers are increasingly aggressive in attacking all workers, union and non-union.
As we transition to a new era in the history of Local 251, we ask that we remember that we're all brothers and sisters with a common goal: building a stronger union. We ask that members get involved and run for shop steward in upcoming elections. The Local will train leaders on the shop floor to enforce our collective bargaining agreements. And when our term begins, we will be able to assess our union and move forward with our ideas for strengthening our Local. Remember, we are all the union, and we need to all have pride in our collective strength.
